Is there a profession out there that's an equal balance between creative writing/publishing and biomedical science?

I am torn between majoring in English and Biomedical Science/Engineering. I love to write stories and strive to become an editor for a publishing company/fiction author or screenwriter, but I also love genetics and would love to be a genetic engineer and researcher (see the details from my previous question.) My parents don't want me to pursue an English degree because the profession "isn't that lucrative" and I'd spend a long time working my way to steady earnings, but they also want me to find a job doing what I love. They've suggested technical writing, but I fear that technical writing could also mean less creativity when writing instruction manuals or scientific journal articles. Any suggestions or advice from real-world experiences? #creative-writing #technical-writing #writing #news-writing #editor #writing-and-editing #fiction-writing #science-fiction #creative-non-fiction #fiction #copy-editing #publishing #genetics #biomedical-engineering #biomedical-science #career-path #screenwriting #author #creative-writing #double-major #dual-career #multiple-interests #english #communications #grant-writing #proposal-writing #career-path #career-choice #career-decisions

I want to establish myself as a writer after college. What might be a viable means of getting my work out there, building my name, etc?

I am an English Major. Although I don't expect to make a quick career out of writing, my wish is to write long after my education is done. #teacher #writing #english #writer #fiction

Can I create for a living, and could it be a feasible goal?

Throughout my recent teenage years, I've been enthused by many to choose a career that I could live off of. I wanted to create for a living. Wherever I go and tell any higher-ups, they ask, "What would you like to create?" I've never wanted to build things with my bear hands, nor have I been fixated on one thing either. However, all of my ideas gravitate on one particular genre, fiction. I always daydream about creating books, video games, television shows, and movies. I have been writing a book, but I always dream about expanding my expertise. I'm curious... What could be reasonable and realistic steps I could take to make my impetus a reality? How can I climb the ranks up from being an average, run-of-the-mill writer? #writing #video-games #fiction #creation

Is there a specific path, or steps that someone must follow to become a creative writer?

Hi! I am a high school senior who loves history and who never stops writing. I used to strongly want to be a writer, but through the years I was slowly discouraged. However, I reevaluated the career today and it still interest me. Are they any steps or is there a certain path I have to follow to become a writer? #creative #writer #fiction #writers #novel-writer

What does it take to make writing into a career?

I am a junior at Boston Collegiate and a part of me has always known I have to be a writer as I get older. I feel like I have a story to tell and without saying it, I will fail myself and everyone. I want to reach people’s hearts using my writing, like so many authors have done for me. Do I need a degree to become a writer? What’s the best piece of advice for an aspiring writer? If I were not to become a writer I still want to be involved in the writing process. I love editing and revising my peers' writing. What kind of job could that translate into? How do I get this kind of job? #writing #author #editor #fiction #story
